shameful-cabling gallery of infamy - does anybody know where it went?

Note that telcos are not immune to shoddy cabling/installation work.

The link below is from a dial/T1 POP at I place I worked in several years 

In case the detail is hard to make out, the paper sign taped to the ladder 

The background is that Bell Atlantic mounted a T1 smartjack cage to the 
wall using undersized drywall screws.  The cage eventually pulled out of 
the wall and came crashing to the floor, at which point some of the T1s in 
this location went down.  We called Bell.  They tested.  They dispatched.
This was their solution.

Final note: the ladder wasn't theirs :)
